In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Creepy.”
Browsing through the local antique mall one day, I came across these constipated little guys. They were about 10 inches tall and made me laugh. I had to snap a photo with my phone. They made enough of an impression on me that I went back the next weekend to buy one or both. I don’t know why exactly – I guess I thought they’d be a goofy conversation piece. Imagine my surprise when I found that they had already been sold! They were obviously antiques; maybe they were valuable.
Anyway, as time went on, I would occasionally come across them when scrolling through my photos. I still think they are hilarious, but I also realized that they’re really kind of creepy.
Who made them?
What on earth could their purpose have been?
I realize now that if I had bought them, they’d be grimacing down at me from my mantel.
Are they funny or creepy? I can’t decide…
